I was swinging from my glass chandelier Lost my grip and landed smack on my rear Banged my head and blood poured out of my ear I screamed expletives nobody should hear! The ache in my bum was very severe Sobbing with pain I shed a salty tear An ambulance was called, it was soon here The driver said 'oh not you again dear .. you need to stay sober and keep off beer… It’s the second time you’ve done this this year'!
